Autumn - Sierra Dean

Cooper Reynolds's life is going to the dogs... literally. 

As if being a high school senior in a small Texas town wasn't hard enough, Cooper has bigger things to worry about than who he'll take to prom and whether or not the Poisonfoot Padres will win homecoming. He has less than a year before his eighteenth birthday, when a curse placed on his family will doom him to live in coyote form forever. 

The last thing he needs to complicate his already messed-up life is a girl, but fate has other plans in mind for him when it brings Eloise "Lou" Whittaker to Poisonfoot. She's grouchy, sarcastic and has no love for her new Texas home, but she might be exactly the right person to help Cooper break the curse. 

The clock is ticking, and Cooper will have to decide if he's willing to let Lou in on his dirty little secret before it's too late.

My thoughts:
I knew there were secrets but then more secrets showed up at the end. Secrets and secrets.

Lou comes to a little town, she does not want to live there but has no choice. And yes she meets a guy, a very mysterious guy who everyone tells her to stay away from.

Cooper is the guy everyone avoids. But that was no secret there for me, the city may not know, but it was already told  to us that every male in his family turn coyote at 18...and stays that way. So poor guy has something to look forward to soon.

But more is going on than that. Like why do they all become coyotes? Why do his mum and her grandmother tell them to not see each other. Why are there other strange things going on?

But I must say, sometimes it kind of reminded me of Beautiful creatures..I have not read the book, but I did see the movie and yeah..similarities. 

And it had an evil ending too, oh of all the cliffies. Must read book 2 soon. Like now!

Conclusion:
Love, magic and hostile feelings.

Wait, what?! They turn coyote at 18? Well, poor guy. :)

I'm glad you liked it.

Karen said...

I like coyotes! Not sure I would want to be stuck as one though lol

Damn those cliffies!

Yvonne said...

Sounds good. Not sure it's my kind of book, though :)

Unknown said...

When I see coyotes I instantly think of Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs. I hope the next book has answers to your questions.

Darlene said...

Oooh., I'm going to have to check into this one. I didn't read Beautiful Creatures either but did see the movie and really liked it. Now I just need to get on with the series. So if this one is kind of similar I'll like it.

Love the long hair on the cover and like th sound of the wicked ending

Keertana said...

I'm not a fan of cliffhangers and tend to avoid them, so I think I'll wait to see how this series plays out before picking it up. Interesting review, though! :)

Linda said...

I know, and then they never turn back. So..not the best 18th birthday

Linda said...

Cliffies of doooooom

Linda said...

maybe not this time around

Linda said...

You will see what I have to say tomorrow ;)

Linda said...

Then you should check it out :D I can't say I liked that movie, but I liked this book, lol

Linda said...

Lol, oh those wicked endings

Linda said...

Book 2 is already out ;) That ending was not as evil

Heidi@Rainy Day Ramblings said...

I liked the Beautiful Creatures series and if this is a bit similar then I would like it except for the cliffie. She is the author of the Secret Mcqueen series right?

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer said...

Oh you have me curious about all of the secrets..despite the cliffy!!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

You read a YA and liked it! :D This does sound like a good book. I haven't seen/read Beautiful Creatures yet so that wouldn't bother me. Yes, cliffies are EVIL!

Elysium said...

I didn't like Beautiful Creatures book or movie but this sounds good. Don't like the cover though.

Carole Rae said...

They can't turn back? Like a werewolf? So they had to reproduce at a young age? SOOOO many questions.

Nathan (@reviewbarn) said...

Could work. Something werewolf like without being a werewolf book.

The Bookworm said...

Sounds like good paranormal romance, I enjoy a good cliffhanger.

Anna (herding cats-burning soup) said...

Ahh the cliffhangers kill me!

Melliane said...

I really enjoyed this one as well and I can't wait to read book 2!

She-Wolf Reads said...

I had no idea this was a paranormal! I need to check this one out. I like Sierra Dean's writing a lot.

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

I actually really like the sound of this one - and the cover! So glad you liked it!

zEmfIrKa said...

Yeah, definitely not! :)

Chris said...

That's not a very autumnal cover.

BookaholicCat said...

You were lucky you had Winter because the end of this one is a killer!!

Linda said...

;)

Linda said...

Yes she is that author and i LOVE LOVE the Secret books...LOVE

Linda said...

Some cliffies are good, I can live with this one

Linda said...

Haha, it does happen. I just do not read a lot. But this was Sierra Dean so I have to read it

Linda said...

Some things were similar, but this was of course Much better

Linda said...

Do you want to reproduce when you know your sons will turn coyote at 18 and never have a real life? The females have gotten babies and hoped the curse was over

Linda said...

Yes. Not like any weres you know

Linda said...

:D

Linda said...

They sure are evil

Linda said...

Yay, I hope you like it

Linda said...

yes yes check it out :)

Linda said...

;)

Linda said...

I am so glad, sometimes it is good to wait

Linda said...

I do think you would enjoy it

Unknown said...

Well I normally hate cliffies, so I'm thrilled to hear the next book is out and that it doesn't have the same painful ending!

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Oh. How did I miss that she had this series out? Hm. Thanks for sharing and sound good. :)

Linda said...

I did love that I could jump to the next at once

Linda said...

Yes she has :D Go read it

Aurian said...

I've read this book the same day you posted the review, I loved it, and want more and more.

Book of Secrets said...

Family curse? So, I'm wondering if he lives in a house full of coyotes...

Unknown said...

I LOVE Sierra Dean. This is going on on the to-read list :)

Linda said...

More now!

Linda said...

Linda said...

She is sooooo awesome
